Amy Jean Eye Couture Lash Elevate with Keratin review
Because nobody does lashes like Amy Jean.
Why we love this treatment
I’ve always been pretty happy with my lashes –- they’re on the longer side of average and they’re quite dark to begin with. But if there’s one qualm I have with them, it’s that they’re dead straight. I’m talking "constantly getting caught on my glasses, might take someone else’s eye out if you get too close" straight eyelashes.
So when the opportunity arose to see brow and lash queen Amy Jean and try the new Lash Elevate with Keratin treatment, I was signed up and ready to go before I finished reading the sentence.
Walking into the Amy Jean Privée suite genuinely feels like walking into a penthouse apartment suite in the middle of the Champs-Élysées. Everything has its place and you’re treated like a celebrity every step of the way – from champagne on arrival to the swinging notes of French jazz in the background, it’s head-to-toe glamour.
The rooms are bright and welcoming, with aqua and gold accents that make you feel like you're surrounded by the kind of luxury you can only hope to achieve. One step in the door and you're guaranteed to feel like a VIP.
As I laid down to relax for the next hour or so, AJ and I (because yes, we’re on a nickname kind of friendship level now) chatted about how we were both from the south coast, and despite having only met her ten minutes beforehand, she built up an easy banter that had me feeling more at ease than I expected.
The actual treatment was also far more relaxing than I’d anticipated. Those of you with sensitive eyes, never fear – it was pain-free, easy and honestly quite soothing. The only confronting bit is at the very beginning, where she sat silicon pads over my bottom lashes to prevent them getting caught up in the solution.
Once you make it through that, you’re literally ready to lie there with your eyes closed for an hour (which, let me tell you, can quickly turn into napping there for an hour). I mean, it’s tough but someone’s gotta do it, right?
As I lay there, AJ applied to my lashes the lash lift solution, a lash tint and a lash conditioner, before washing each eye delicately in an eye bath to remove the excess tint. I was lucky enough that she offered to do my brows while I was waiting for the solution to take hold – and let me tell you, you’ll never feel better than hearing a brow expert tell you you’ve got a good shape.
When the treatment ended and I opened my eyes again, I could literally feel my eyelashes reaching up towards my eyebrows. I felt more awake, and with the exception of one event, I’ve been able to go mascara-free ever since. When I applied a little concealer, it was clear just how intense the effect of the Lash Elevate was.
Aftercare was simple – apply a specially designed Keratin solution in the mornings to nourish the lashes and enjoy looking like you've got Bambi eyes for the next few weeks. Too easy!
I came away from the experience a total lash lift convert. Goodbye falsies, goodbye extensions.
So, miracle worker Amy Jean, I’ll be seeing you again in six to eight weeks.
Including a lash tint, the Lash Elevate with Keratin treatment will set you back $130, but with a lasting power of between six to eight weeks, it's definitely worth the cost. However, if you're after an appointment at the Privée with Amy Jean, it's $165.
Where you can get it
If you're sitting there thinking "Hey, my lashes could use a sky-high lasting treatment", you can book in to get the Lash Elevate with Keratin treatment at any of the Amy Jean Eye Couture salons. There's one in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and on the Gold Coast. However, if you want a visit with the lash and brow goddess herself, you'll have to make your way to Sydney to the exclusive, luxury Privée space (by appointment only).
